Update: Innovation Direct™ seeks update from Arizona-based manufacturer on auto accessory…

Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking in with an update on a situation we last reported on over 3 months ago, in a July 9th entry (“Update: Innovation Direct™ speaks to automotive accessory inventor regarding latest communication from manufacturer; new prototype samples likely to be sent soon for testing…“). As we’d explained in that posting, an Arizona-based manufacturer that had signed an exclusive developmental licensing agreement for an auto accessory from the Innovation Direct™ roster last December had expressed a willingness to continue to explore the potential of the invention over the next few months, an arrangement the inventor had agreed to. As we’d also stated in the entry, we had informed the manufacturer that the inventor had some new prototypes he had constructed utilizing different material.

Never having received a response to that last communication, the Innovation Direct™ representative managing the situation since the onset thought it would be prudent to request an overall status report at this time. Our contact at the company had informed us in his last communication during the summer that they were tied up with several other projects at the time, hence the request for an extension on the time period of exclusivity with this invention, so the invention may have realistically not been a high priority over the last several weeks. Nevertheless, we are hopeful of receiving a positive update and will bring you information on any feedback we receive, here on the Innovation Direct™ Blog. Check in with us !
